Washington D.C. Premiere


Lars Siltberg

8:00 PM
Directed by: Lars Bergström and Mats Bigert
Venue: Hirshhorn Museum

THE WEATHER WAR (Sweden, 2012, 58 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere In a blend of land art performance and road movie, Swedish artist duo Bigert and Bergström travel to the U.S. tornado belt with their special machine-sculpture, the Tornado Diverter. The goal: To stop a tornado. This documentary/art film is about man’s attempts to control the weather and harness it for his own purposes. Along the way, we see historical examples of how the science of meteorology developed in symbiosis with military goals and how these visions evolved into modern ideas of geo-engineering. Exploring controversial ideas with socio-political consequences, the film spotlights the big question of how we meet the challenges of increasingly extreme weather due to global warming. Directed by Lars Bergström and Mats Bigert.

Introduced by Brenda Ekwurzel, Senior Climate Scientist, Union of Concerned Scientists.
